Anne Bruh

In 1944 Anne and Max Bruh, both refugees from Germany living in London, bought an ‘off the shelf’ company named Frank Usher. Over a period of five decades Frank Usher grew into a succession of many other brands all of which were overseen by Anne and all with the “wow factor”. These included Coterie, Dusk, Belinda Ch’ng and Oliver James. All of which were regularly seen at red-carpet events.
Despite their humble beginnings Anne and Max rose to the top of the international fashion market where these vintage styles still demand attention today. Worn by royalty and socialites alike, it was the first choice of everyone anticipating a special occasion.
